New Releases from AMS Books

The Thinking Person's Guide to Climate ChangeThe Thinking Person’s Guide to Climate Change, by Robert Henson

This new publication from AMS Books cuts through the confusion and controversy and provides a straightforward, comprehensive overview of climate science. An updated and expanded version of the popular title, The Rough Guide to Climate Change, it has both a strong scientific foundation and an accessible style, giving it appeal to a wide audience, from researchers and professors to students and nonscientists.


Father Benito Viñes Father Benito Viñes, by Luis E. Ramos Guadalupe

Father Benito Viñes is a fascinating look at the life of a man who worked on the cutting edge of weather science while still remaining devoted to his religious life. It depicts Viñes as both pioneer in the study of tropical meteorology and a colonial Jesuit priest. With notes that put his life into modern context, this book puts a much deserved spotlight on a figure who played a crucial role in making our lives safer.
